“Chain restuarant with down home taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Stopped in for a light dinner and left full. There are 61 of these restaurants in 8 western states. You don't get a foot print like that if you don't know what you are doing. I settled on the pot roast and enjoyed every tasty, juicy bit of it. If you are traveling and see one of these, stop in for some home cookin'

“Yuck”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Yuck. My daughter ordered a chicken pot pie and found hair (more than one) cooked into the crust. Then my son had their bread pudding and there was a hair in that too. Management did remove the cost of the items but without any apologies. We have been going to this dinner regularly but never again. Poor food quality. Poor management. Servers are very kind though.

“Disappointed in the additional charges”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We try to stop at as many Black Bear Diners as possible, as overall we like them very much. But there are also differences between them, in portion size and other services too. Today we went to the one in Grants Pass. We were offered a choice of potato with our tri tip dinner. My husband elected a baked potato, and I elected a mashed potato. Mine came without gravy, and so waitress asked if I wanted some, which I did. When our bill arrived, we were charged nearly $2 extra for the baked potato, and nearly $1 extra for my gravy. What a surprise, as the up charge was not mentioned when we were given the potato option. But we simply paid it but also don't think we will go back anytime soon. We also noticed that the Grants Pass store serves the side salad on small plates, and the other stores we routinely visit serve it in large plates. - - Overall we like Black Bear, but the Grants Pass store is not our favorite. Our favorites are the restaurants in Yreka, and also Shasta.

“Sizeable to share portion and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We often go to the Black Bear in Grants Pass, Oregon and have yet to leave hungry. Food is prepared very well.( Now we have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed.) The service and friendliness of the restaurant brings us back.

We'll defintely return and recommend you try it there.
